Freud's Mexico is a completely unexpected contribution to Freud studies. Here, RubénGallo reveals Freud's previously undisclosed connections to a culture and a psychoanalytic traditionnot often associated with him. Freud found a receptive audience among Mexican intellectuals, readMexican books, collected Mexican antiquities, and dreamed Mexican dreams; his writings bear thetraces of a longstanding fascination with the country. In the Mexico of the 1920s and 1930s, Freudmade an impact not only among psychiatrists but also in literary, artistic, and political circles.Gallo writes about a "motley crew" of Freud's readers who devised some of the mostoriginal, elaborate, and influential applications of psychoanalytic theory anywhere in the world:the poet Salvador Novo, a gay dandy who used Freud to vindicate marginal sexual identities; theconservative philosopher Samuel Ramos, who diagnosed the collective neuroses afflicting his country;the cosmopolitan poet Octavio Paz, who launched a psychoanalytic inquiry into the origins of Mexicanhistory; and Gregorio Lemercier, a Benedictine monk who put his entire monastery intopsychoanalysis. After describing Mexico's Freud, Gallo offers an imaginative reconstruction ofFreud's Mexico. Although Freud himself never visited Mexico, he owned a treatise on criminal law bya Mexican judge who put defendants--including Trotsky's assassin--on the psychoanalyst's couch; heacquired Mexican pieces as part of his celebrated collection of antiquities; and he recorded dreamsof a Mexico that was fraught with danger. Freud's Mexico features a varied cast of characters thatincludes Maximilian von Hapsburg, Leon Trotsky and his assassin Ramón Mercader, Frida Kahlo, DiegoRivera--and even David Rockefeller. Gallo offers bold and vivid rereadings of both Freudian textsand Mexican cultural history.

From the master of Freud debunkers, the book that definitively puts an end to the myth of psychoanalysis and its creator Since the 1970s, Sigmund Freud’s scientific reputation has been in an accelerating tailspin—but nonetheless the idea persists that some of his contributions were visionary discoveries of lasting value. Now, drawing on rarely consulted archives, Frederick Crews has assembled a great volume of evidence that reveals a surprising new Freud: a man who blundered tragicomically in his dealings with patients, who in fact never cured anyone, who promoted cocaine as a miracle drug capable of curing a wide range of diseases, and who advanced his career through falsifying case histories and betraying the mentors who had helped him to rise. The legend has persisted, Crews shows, thanks to Freud’s fictive self-invention as a master detective of the psyche, and later through a campaign of censorship and falsification conducted by his followers. A monumental biographical study and a slashing critique, Freud: The Making of an Illusion will stand as the last word on one of the most significant and contested figures of the twentieth century.

Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, declared that religion is a universal obsessional neurosis in his famous work of 1927, The Future of an Illusion. This work provoked immediate controversy and has continued to be an important reference for anyone interested in the intersection of philosophy, psychology, religion, and culture. Included in this volume is Oskar Pfister’s critical engagement with Freud’s views on religion. Pfister, a Swiss pastor and lay analyst, defends mature religion from Freud’s “scientism.” Freud’s and Pfister’s texts have been updated in Gregory C. Richter’s translations from the original German.

Marxism And Psychoanalysis

The methods developed by Freud and Marx have enabled a range of scholars to critically reflect upon the ideological underpinnings of modern and now postmodern or hypermodern western societies. In this intriguing book, the discipline of psychology itself is screened through the twin dynamics of Marxism and psychoanalysis. David Pavón-Cuéllar asks to what extent the terms, concerns and goals of psychology reflect, in fact, the dominant bourgeois ideology that has allowed it to flourish. The book charts a gradual psychologization within society and culture dating from the nineteenth century, and examines how the tacit ideals within mainstream psychology – creating good citizens or productive workers – sit uneasily against Marx and Freud’s ambitions of revealing fault-lines and contradictions within individualist and consumer-oriented structures. The positivist aspiration of psychology to become a natural science has been the source of extensive debate, critical voices asserting the social and cultural contexts through which the human mind and behaviour should be understood. This challenging new book provides another voice that, in addressing two of the most influential intellectual traditions of the past 150 years, widens the debate still further to examine the foundations of psychology.

Renowned social psychologist Erich Fromm’s classic study of Freud’s most important—and controversial—ideas Bestselling philosopher and psychoanalyst Erich Fromm contends that the principle behind Freud’s work—the wellspring from which psychoanalysis flows—boils down to one well-known belief: “And the truth shall set you free.” The healing power of truth is what Freud used to cure depression and anxiety, cutting through repression and rationalizations, and it provided the foundation for modern psychology. Freud’s work, however, was not without its flaws. Though he pioneered many of the practices still in use today, Freud’s perspective was imperfect. In Greatness and Limitation of Freud’s Thought, Fromm deepens the understanding of Freud by highlighting not just his remarkable insights, but also his flaws, on topics ranging from dreams to sexuality. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

"... well-written and well-documented landmark study... " —Choice "This book raises important ideological and esthetic questions about the interpretation of artistic and cultural manifestations in a given society."Â —Hispanic American Historical Review "The present volume is provocative in direction and a refreshing addition to the extant literature on the Mexican Âcorrido genre." —American Ethnologist "[Herrera-Sobek's] refreshing approach to analyzing masculine attitudes toward the feminine as expressed in the Mexican Âcorrido is not only insightful but courageous." —Inez Cardozo-Freeman, Southern Folklore "... well-researched, insightful, clearly written, and well-illustrated study of a genre familiar in Hispanic culture." —Journal of the American Studies Association "... provides tantalizing insights into the inner workings and meanings of Mexico's favorite folk ballads..." —Journal of Third World Studies Challenging the stereotypical view of the passive Mexican/Chicana woman of the archetype, the author examines the portrayal of female figures in over three thousand Âcorridos or Mexican ballads and shows that in spite of long-dominant patriarchal ideology, the Âcorridos reveal the presence of self-confident women throughout Mexican history. Included are a discography, a detailed bibliography of Âcorrido collections, and several photographs of Âsoldaderas from the internationally famous Augustin Casasola collection.
